Ranger Rich Demystifies DTV

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.: In one of the more cogently written treatises on digital television, Rich Tosches of the Colorado Springs Independent explains the finer points of the transition.

Q. What is digital TV?
A. No one really knows. But the benefits are enormous. Locally, on June 12, the day of the conversion, a 7-year-old got into our KOAA-TV studio, played with the buttons and knocked the station off the air during the final 10 dramatic minutes of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Thanks to digital, the on-screen notice telling us the station was off the air was very clear.

Tosches’ fully fathomable explanation is available at the Independent.
